Taylors Mistake Beach Carpark.

Located 15km east of Christchurch city, just over the hill from Sumner.

Please allow for extra time travelling to the event due to the narrow roads and possible roadworks. We encourage competitors to car pool if at all possible.

Course Details

The Boulder Bay Classic starts from the beach. The Godley Head track is a well formed gravel pathway maintained to a high standard. There are a number of gates and stiles, as well as sections of wooden boardwalks and steps.

While the track is very runnable, care is needed due to the coastal terrain and the narrowing of the track in places. Please do not wear ipods or similar electronic gear during this run.
